My name is Leonard Alexander. I’m a first time subscriber to WriteAPrisoner.

Since my incarceration, anyone is subject to loneliness when the world moves forward and they’re left behind. I decided to better myself in my position in order to be a positive, productive, law abiding citizen once I’m released back into society, which is why I decided to finish my schooling as...


I’m hoping to meet new friends with common interests.

I’m of Dano-Norwegian heritage. I’m currently trying to learn Norwegian. I love 4 wheel drive trucks and offroading. I also like to hunt. I’m pretty much into all forms of motorsports. I ride a Harley. I play pool (billiards). I like playing video games when I’m not doing something more exciting. I’m also a self-made tattoo artist....


My name is Jesse. I am 38 years young, 6’0’’ tall, 190lbs, and of an athletic build. I guess one can say it’s one of the very few perks of prison life, haha.

But seriously, I would love to communicate and write to honest and loyal individuals. It seems like those qualities are dying out.

As for myself, it’s important for me to be around like-minded people. That means people who...

It’s easy for us to forget what freedom really means. It’s more than just being of restraint or incarceration. It’s much more than having the ability to freely choose where you want to go or what you’d like to do. One of the most essential pieces of freedom is having the ability to share your world with others, those you love and care for. I’ve discovered that when I am without the means to...


Hi, my name is Thomas. I'm looking for people to have conversations with about anything positive and fun.

I have two beautiful daughters; 5 years and 2 months old. My favorite football team is the Dallas Cowboys. My hobbies are drawing, sports cars, sports, and outside activities. I'm just an all-around family man looking for some friendly company.


Have you ever asked yourself, when am I most happy in life? I have, and the answer happens to be; When someone else is there, to share lives small, large, and everything between.

Maybe we can find some happiness together! I’ve made mistakes in my life, but who hasn’t? The mistakes I’ve made serve as lessons for me today, and to those, I’ve been blessed to come in contact with, along my...

My name is Sarah and I would love to talk to you! I spend my days trying to keep myself entertained.

I love long walks on the beach and watching the sunset. But then I remember I am in this cement box. As you can see I love to make people laugh. I love listening to music and creating works of art.

Take a chance and get to know me!


People always ask me what the worst part about being locked up is. Unquestionably for me it’s the loss of relationships and purpose in my life. That is why I feel it is so important for me to do anything and everything necessary to prepare for life beyond these gates.

First and foremost, I am enrolled in Adams State University working on my associate degree, while at the same time...

Hello ladies,

I guess it’s safe to say we have made it past the hard part, considering you have viewed my profile. I already know some people have a few misconceptions about people in prison. I would like to put those to rest if allowed. I’m not really the kind of guy capable of supplying you with a bunch of game, or B.S lines. I can only come to you as I am, and that’s real. I figure...
